I’ve been taking voice lessons with Maya for the past year and I’m always amazed by what I discover about my voice after doing a two days of work with Maya. Maya is a master at her craft and she has an incredible talent for tricking you into unlocking and accessing abilities you never knew you had. I can’t say enough about how much this work has helped me as an artist and a performer and what a phenomenal teacher Maya is.
